Super League Dream Team 2013

Super League minor premiers Huddersfield have five players in the 2013 Dream Team.

Stand-off Danny Brough, centre Leroy Cudjoe, hooker Shaun Lunt, prop Eorl Crabtree and back-rower Brett Ferres are all named in the line-up, all for the first time.

Other new faces include Hull pair Ben Crooks and Tom Lineham, Wigan scrum-half Matty Smith and Wakefield’s Danny Kirmond.

Veteran Leeds prop Jamie Peacock makes the team for the ninth time, and the first time since 2009, and Wigan star Sam Tomkins is selected for the fifth consecutive year.

Completing the team are Wigan duo Josh Charnley and Sean O’Loughlin.

All 13 players are English-born, with only Danny Brough not eligible for England selection for the World Cup, having committed to Scotland.

It is the first time in history that the full team hasn’t included any overseas players, and comes 12 years after just four England players were included in the 2001 Dream Team.
